Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
On her trip home, Cecilia (Clio Goldsmith), a wealthy and sophisticated woman, pulls over along the highway to vent her misery at the pending death of her father. A man (Vittorio Mezzogiorno) stops his car and comes up to see if he can be of assistance. She is so overcome at his kindness that they end up in each other's arms, overcome by passion. After she returns home, the man has not forgotten her and suddenly appears at her house -- a fugitive, armed with a gun, and running from the authorities (whether he is a right-wing or left-wing terrorist is never clear, though he is probably some kind of terrorist). Cecilia decides to leave with him, and they stay together until reaching a town where she comes across her husband. This jolt causes Cecilia to re-examine her escapade, and to take control of her life again.
